I'm looking to get a crate for Silly, she's 19" long (snout to butt) while the small crates are almost always also 19" long (claimed to be for dogs up to 25 lbs, Silly's only 10.5 lbs). Would a 19" crate be comfortable for her or should I go up to the next size of 24"?

I would go with the 24". 19" is too small if Silly is 19" nose to butt.
I went with a 19" for my 7.5 lbs dog, and he JUST fits in there. He is 11" base of neck to butt (so def. smaller than your dog). I also have a 24" one for my foster dog, who is probably more around Silly's size, but a bit smaller. She has a lot of space in there, but it's not big enough for her to go potty in one of the corners or something.
I highly doubt the 24" could actually accomodate a 25 lbs dog lol but yeah usually weight estimates are rubbish. You really want to measure your dog and make sure he can stand up comfortably and stretch out/lie down comfortably in it
